Recognising the Uniting Church's commitment to peacemaking , the Assembly is supporting the 2009 PROPHET SCHOOL, which addresses the questions “What does it mean to follow Jesus of Nazareth in the 21st Century?” and “Is it possible to create a new world built on contemplative nonviolence?”

The Uniting Church in Australia, it has recently been noted, is the only major church to officially support a Human Rights Act. This is true but there is more diversity among the Christian community than is often recognised.

The Uniting Church in Australia has written to MPs and Senators, urging them to vote for a strengthened Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme.

The Uniting Church in Australia has written to Prime Minister Rudd and Shadow Minister for Immigration and Citizenship Sharman Stone to express concern and disappointment at the Government's responses to asylum seekers arriving by boat.
